NLMK Group supplies abrasion-resistant steel for eco-friendly dump trucks
NLMK Group, a global steel company, has supplied abrasion-resistant Quard 450 steel produced at NLMK Clabecq to Becema Machine Building Plant. NLMK steel will be used in Becema’s joint project with Mercedes-Benz to release a series of BECEMA FORMAT dump trucks on Mercedes-Benz Arocs 8x8 chassis frames. These frames are in line with the Euro 5 emission standard that regulates the content of hazardous substances in exhaust fumes.
Becema will use NLMK steel to produce truck bodies with molded edges and a double floor for the transportation of inert aggregates (sand, gravel, crushed stone). With an optimal ratio of strength and impact toughness, Quard 450 steel will ensure high resistance to abrasion and impact loads.
Quard steel is used in harsh conditions and is recommended for construction and mining equipment (excavators, dump trucks, bulldozers, hoppers, mixers, etc.), among other applications. The unique wear-resistant properties of this grade more than triple the durability of individual special-purpose equipment components.
